LEXINGTON, Mass., April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- The Reproductive Science Center of New England has achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC/Accreditation Association), according to Dr. Samuel Pang, medical director.
Status as an accredited organization means Reproductive Science Center of New England has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care, set by the Accreditation Association. Over 3,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC.
"Accreditation underscores our long-standing commitment to providing the highest possible levels of quality care to the community we serve," said Dr. Pang. "We are pleased and proud to have our efforts recognized with this accreditation."
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of its facilities and services. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.
Among the types of ambulatory health care organizations that can seek AAAHC accreditation are ambulatory and office-based surgery centers, single and multi-specialty group practices, college health centers, dental group practices, community health centers, occupational health centers and managed care organizations.
